When The Morning Stars Sang
True believers will shine as stars. Now, in the world of darkness , true believers have the light of Christ that they may be as candles bringing the sweet, embraceable light to those still in need. In Genesis 1:3 we read the wordsAnd God said, Let there be light and there was light. We have the pleasure of delighting in a night time sky, where stars sparkle like little diamonds. There is the awesome witness of God in all of His Creation telling the Gospel message in its own splendorous and joyful way.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Creation praises the Lord. The stars were created to praise Him. We read in Psalm 148:3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light. How do we notice the stars but by lifting up our eyes? True believers lift up their minds, prayers, cries, praise and song(s) to the Lord. We lift up our eyes off of this world and onto what God created! -Our Heavenly Father made us to shine. Jesus commanded us to - Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven- Matthew 5:16
We shall be as the morning stars written of in Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?"; And we read also how each star is known to Him by name in Psalm 147 : 4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Wise are the stars for they are given the gift of wisdom from God. God gives His wisdom to those who humbly ask. (James 1: 5) Christ is the wisdom. 1 Corinthians 1: 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: A verse that helps us look toward a bright and glrious future with our Saviour is written in Daniel chapter 12 vs. 3 where we read-. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.
Hearts of gladness believe, trust and treasure the everlasting promises of God regarding what we are now and what we will be by His magnificent salvation plan sealed through the victory of Jesus Christ. What joy and singing there will be when New Jerusalem arrives. We sing now and will continue to sing when entered into His City that will have no need for a sun. We read in Revelation 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. Our time on this earth is precious, yet fleeting. We are only at the beginning of a sacred journey. We are devoted to shining our Light for Christ as commanded.
We are as candles at present shining on in darkness, until we become the stars that sing an eternal song of worship and praise to the Lord for all eternity. Look up with me , friend. Shine bright for His Kingdom .
